In a bid tackle the problem of environmental degradation as well as uplift the livelihoods of women, Kkona Women decided to start the briquettes projects, Briquettes are an alternative to charcoal which is commonly used in Uganda and most parts of Africa as energy for cooking, briquettes are made out of wastes like banana and other peels, anti-hill soil and other rubbish. They are either made manually with hands or with a briquette making machine.
